Thank you to all those who attended County Trials this evening, Every single player performed to a great level and the quality of this year’s players is tremendous, making it as ever a very tough decision to try and reduce down to a squad of 16 for the 1st Match against Greater Manchester.
We have made all decisions based on both Saturday’s Trials and tonight’s march and the following players have been selected for the 1st match:
We spoke tonight with the all lads that due to the amount of high quality players available, there will be plenty of opportunities throughout the course of the season for other players to come into the squad and that they will be watched right throughout the season at both district matches as well as club games. This includes players not selected at tonight’s trial too.
Can parents of the players who attended tonight’s trial match please message me their name on 07585 336 302 and email address so I have a contact number and email for future contact.
Letters for the game will be emailed to parents so they can get early release next Wed. (Copy below of details)
